  4. I know the feeling, but you have more restraint than me when it comes to posting. Funny thing...as I have been following your posts, I kept thinking, I would love to go there one day.A friend asked me the other day if we'd like to go to lake Eyre. We have booked to go in November. We visit Wilpena Pound on the way. Yoohoo. Lovely shots!

the tale of love is never told.
Fear not, my love, nor fly away,

Trust to me, oh trust to me."

Cobwebs they gather and dry grass,
greeting each other as they pass
up to the nest and down again,
the blue wren and the brown wren.
They seek and carry far and near,
down the bank and up the hill,
until that crystal note they hear
that strikes them dumb and holds them still.

Great glorious passion of a voice--
